Here we can see that that MOJO has used their Masthead again like they do on the front

cover. This backs up that the magazine as it lets the readers know that it is when they are reading it.

The image used here is Florence Welch, from Florence and the Machines, this shows that it is related to the article title which is closest to her face.

The colour of the text has only two colours, which we can see is red and white. The main title or page number is in red to state where to go to, but it is also grabs your attention as it stands out on the grey background. White is used to make the text stand out and show the people reading it what that article maybe about, but also makes a link between the text and the colour of the head mast.

The main image used here is appropriate as it this edition of MOJO is mainly about Florence. The clothes she is dressed in are simple and make her stand out on the page. It also makes her stand out and from the background and also the text is bold against her. The photo of Florence used is big, taking up half the space on the page and she has her face turned away from the camera, this could represent that she has some form of power as she is not paying attention to the camera.

Also the dark background and the dark colour clothing she wears can suggest that she has something dark about her and the way her head is looking up could mean that she doesn’t look down to people, she has power over most people

Also she has her back arched showing that she stands stall against most people, which makes her stand out in the contents page and against the text.

The colour use in the band index has a good link to masthead, with the main house style colours which are red, black and white., this helps create a clear link to show what music magazine it is, also the colour red used can fit with the genre of music, red is looked upon to be angry, rock can link to red, which NME cover a lot of rock.

The banner at the top is in bold and thick underline which stands out which shows what page and what you are reading, and who it is from.

There is an image in the middle of the page. It is about one of the articles in the magazine and is telling the reader a bit about the article. When you see the image, it looks interesting as people are playing instruments and look like they’re having fun, this draws you in and to know what the picture is about. , they may look at the contents page to see. The images support what the articles will be about; in this case it might be a gig.

The subheadings are in black and white which the white text makes it stand out against the black, drawing people’s attention to what is in the contents page. Also the use of the colour white on black matches to the background colour of page which is also white. The sub headings little writing underneath them, which draws attention to what else could be in that article They also follow the house style with the red page numbers.

The NME ‘Subscribe Today’ is advertising what they have to offer, also the colour used, yellow, makes it stand out from the ordinary house style they use. Also the size of the text draws the attention o the reader as in bold ‘Save 33%’ you want to know what you are saving 33% on

The use of the image fills up most of the top which could suggest that the main article is about that band, in this case Pierce The Veil. Also the text in yellow is a lot larger than the rest; with the different sized numbers and text it states that the band is the main article in this magazine.

The use of the distorted circle with text in gets your attention as you see something messy in the corner of the page, but as soon as you read it you instantly know it’s the contents, also the scratched up circle could also make a link that it is Kerrang! Magazine as on their own masthead it looks like a piece o f broken glass.

The issue and date are shown again at the top of the page, so that the reader know which magazine this is.

The black on yellow makes the subheading really stand out on the black background, so people know what is going to be in the magazine aswell as an idea of what is going to be in the article.

Here I believe is a small article about the editor of the Kerrang! Magazine, with this it shows the readers a bit about Kerrang! Magazine, also the cartoon image of the editor could suggest that it’s not all hard work but they do like to have fun and enjoy themselves as well. With this it makes the reader feel as if they know more about the editor already. Making it a less formal article.

The multiple uses of images all have big fancy images of people posing or at gigs, this shows us they have had some important news, also, the photo of the guy singing at the gig shows that they go out and get their reports from watching their stuff live. Also with the bold numbers it tells you directly where to go and a small piece of text about what will be in that article.

Also the layout is a bit all over the place, showing that Kerrang! In general do not like to stick to one layout, also suggesting they like to get around and try new things out. And not be boring.
